Hi Anastasia, I really love this post. This post is so picturesque in a way that it stimulates my mind to "picture " what I will do there. Sounds and looks like Cyprus is so fun. I wanna go there and wanna do all the things you suggested , especially the beaches, the spas, shopping for souvenirs, parties, food and all those visual delights to see and enjoy. Hope to visit your place someday.


Lovely post and great photos! I love Italia Spaghetteria and have eaten there 3-4 times. I hear they make their own pasta which is really delicious. I agree, it's the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to in Cyprus.


I will bookmark your wonderful post and try to do all these great things next time I have a long holiday...except scuba diving maybe! Another great thing you can do in Cyprus, especially if you live in Lemesos, is take a swim at one of our great beaches and about an hour later ski in Troodos. This is not possible every year but many times in March, we get warm weather on the coast and snow in the mountains. I've never tried it myself cos I don't ski, but in early March I joined some friends who are excellent swimmers and excellent skiers. We spent the morning on the beach, by 12:00 pm we were at Troodos Ski resort and I watched them ski in their swimming costumes! This must be fun!

Je vois qu'il est pratiquement impossible de s'ennuyer à Chypre. J'aimerais tant avoir l'occasion de visiter ton beau pays. N'oublie pas que j'adore la bonne bouffe et je sais, grâce à ton blog, que la cuisine chypriote est délicieuse. J'espère pouvoir y goûter un jour.

Having lived for 2 years in Cyprus, I have tried most of these things, namely, party barefoot on the sand till the early morning hours, hiking in Troodos, agrotourism and exploring small villages right off the beaten track like Ficardou and Lofou, of course I loved the food especially souvla and sheftalia and did a lot more like windsurfing, water ski and learning Greek. Have forgotten most of it now :-) Love your photos!

I am a very traditional Greek Cypriot and I prefer tavernas to gastronomic restaurants featuring, so to speak, authentic Cyprus cuisine and charging at least €25-35 per person! I love Stoa tou Dimitri Tavern in Nicosia where you can have traditional Cyprus meze and dessert for only €15 per person. Also try I Gonia tou Anastasi in Tseri - just amazing!

....and may I add that playing golf at Aphrodite's Hills Resort in Paphos is a unique experience! Great post, great pictures!
